Well that article was posted 4 years ago, a quick look at their home page, or a Google search reveals "The Onion" is a joke/humor site. Fake news stories as entertainment.
Do us Americans really have such a bad reputation that this had to be a serious question?
I think the intended entertainment value is in creating a realistic looking story that is crazy enough to make you doubt it, but inserts just enough "fact" to make you think twice. I admit I had to google the Onion, not because I thought the story was true, but because I thought the article was real, and some tabloid at the time (2005) was spreading that story.
I don't think it is intended to make humor out of a corpse or cause you to laugh at death; but to question the story and make light of how outrageous real life news coverage has become.
Just my opinion anyway, and I didn't take offense at all
I hadn't heard of this "news" site before, and now I have.
